Disclosure of national security secrets has become a cult as
addictive and crippling as non-disclosure, NDA v. leaks. Both suffer
excessive secrecy as if wedded in a vainglorious conspiracy to claim
to protect and reveal much but carefully dispense only that which
buttresses their information and power control, eyeing and emulating
one another to guarantee mutual benefits.
Neither fully serves the populace, instead disdains consumers,
propagandas for product, adopts one another's practices, revolving
doors their practitioners, aided and abetted by governments
pretending to act on behalf of their subjects. Prosecutors, judges,
legislators, executives, lockstep with each other and with their
ostensible opponents, especially the governmentally-privileged
wealthy, NGOs, journalists and manufactures of weaponry, hardware and
software, paid and free.
Periodic orchestrated campaigns of Ellsbergs, Mannings, Snowdens, et
al, signal breakaway insiders but merely confirm these are standard
operating procedures for limited disclosure to boost reputations of
disclosers and non-disclosers.
The Internet promised a change with free software, free access, free
discourse, and immediately became dominated by practitioners of
duplicity, openness concealing secrecy, deceptions long established.
Witness this very forum and its vanity description on Wikipedia.
Or more telling, the Web, Wikimedia and Archive, kissing cousins of
Google, SM, aggregators, bots, Tor, Deep Web, all dancing to the tune
of TLAs with Terms of Service, privacy policies, redactions,
omissions, secure submissions, open source vetting, which baldly
disclose cooperation with authorities, trust us even so.
This is all well known and belabored, hustled and lipsticked, mea
culpa. Still, there are possibilities for avoiding the domination of,
and manipulation by, secretkeepers and their complicit opponents. One
is to keep away from the most popular and promoted infosec, comsec,
techsec, privacy, indeed, sec in all its permuations, especially that
associated with natsec -- the civil-military-commercial-NGO occult.
Secrecy and leakage, don't believe anything about them, same coin.
